The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

I think this is my highest rating ever for a Sarina Bowen novel, and that’s saying something. Sarina writes some of my favorite new adult romances, and every single one of her books is an immediate must-read for me. The reason this one struck me so hard? It’s the slow burn of the century. If you’ve read the rest of the books in Sarina’s Brooklyn Bruisers series, you’ll know that she’s already hinted at the romance between billionaire tech guru Nate Kattenberger, owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team, and his office manager, the sassy Rebecca Rowley. Those glimpses were […]

Your Next Rom-Com Reads: Man Hands and Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Friends, as many of you know, I am Sarina Bowen-obsessed. So when I heard she and Tanya Eby were writing two rom-coms called Man Hands and Man Card, I leapt at the chance to review them. Sarina is a great at partnering with other authors to write the best new adult romance out there (see: the Him series; Temporary, etc, etc). Her romances are packed with loveable, relatable characters, found families and friendships, and swoony moments. Please note: These are R-rated, and you may snort laugh while reading these. I sure did. And they got me out of my first month […]
